Halloween Costumes-Cheetah, Leopard, Monster & Poseidon

They’re done! Four costumes for four cute little boys. I love to make my boys’ Halloween costumes (see past years costumes here) but this is the first year that I have sewn all 4 costumes from scratch. It went amazingly well.

May I introduce you first, to a little monster:

So cute and so snuggly! That’s the softest fabric in the world. I am going to be squeezing him constantly.

We also have two wild animals. Brace yourselves:

They’re fierce. And they haven’t taken those costumes off since I finished them about 10 days ago. I love that. The cheetah even wore his to a college football game last Saturday. Definitely a hit with the coeds.

And last I present you with the Greek God of the Seas, Poseidon:

I love that my 4th grader wanted to be Poseidon. So cool! And easy to do. I sewed a simple toga type thing, bought a crown and glued seashells on it and bought a devil’s pitchfork and spray painted it gold and Viola! Poseidon.

Don’t forget if you are making costumes you can enter the Handmade Halloween Contest here.
